The OAS Registry of Heritage Places Project

June 16, 2017 in Community Pulse

The Registry will become the official place of record, listing all important sites, buildings, structures and objects that are significant to the history of St. Kitts.

Because Cultural Heritage is a resource valued by entire communities and by nations, governments are responsible for its protection. In order for Government to discharge its protection obligation, it must begin by establishing Heritage Inventory Programmes that identify and characterize what those heritage places are, what elements in them deserve consideration and then for added protection, to give them official recognition under the constitution and legislation of the country.

Nominations for listing can come from the public, private institutions., Government or the National Trust.

For more information please contact the SCNT at 465-5584 or or visit us in the Old Treasury building on the Bay Road, Basseterre.
